Octoparse

Octoparse is good for web scraping and crawling. It has done everything I've ever asked it to with very few exceptions. With that in mind, I would think that if it wasn't able to preform a task, it's probably user error. I'm hesitant to reach out to their customer service team, as with the free plan you get what they call "community, lazy support" which makes it seem like they'll get to you when they feel like it. Not really complaining though, since I'm not paying for anything, so what can you expect? At any rate, I'd highly recommend them

Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog tracks the crawl level, internal links, outbound links, title tags, and meta descriptions of the pages it crawls. It also adds HTTP status codes, title tag length, meta description length, H1, H2 tags and lengths, and canonical tags. Many of these elements are also broken into their own tabs at the top so that you can easily focus in on problem areas. You can right-click on any URL for many more options. The program is definitely valuable to anyone who is looking to gauge factors regarding SEO. However, if you are not a web designer/admin, you're going to lack an understanding of the information it provides.

Pros

Octoparse

  • Web Scraping.
  • Crawling.
  • Data Export.
  • Market Comparison Analysis.
Peter Angel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

  • Crawling client sites of up to thousands of pages. Gives you almost every tool that you need to do a proper SEO audit.
  • Custom extractions using CSSpath, Xpath, or Regex. I'm not even a techy, but their support section here is a huge help with the provided examples.
  • Customer service and support - Dan is ALWAYS very prompt to respond with helpful answers on Twitter if needed.

Cons

Octoparse

  • Haven't had any issues with the program or company. But there's certainly a learning curve. More tutorial videos wouldn't hurt.
Peter Angel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

  • Exporting one report at time to CSV or XSLX can be cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Custom extraction requires pretty in-depth knowledge of RegEx or XPath.
  • Not a very visual tool.
  • Larges sites can take up a tremendous amount of resources (RAM, space, connection).

The tool has become integrated into our teams daily workings and I have yet to find a tool other than scremaing frog to replicate all of our use cases for it. It's a great tool and we're sticking with it

Easy for me to use because I have using the product for a long time and understand the ins and outs of it. If I was a newbie, I would be completely lost. It does take some prior knowledge to operate this software and understanding of what a crawl means

Screaming Frog is a relatively primitive system, and doesn't need to be supported by devs or other software. Screaming Frog does interface directly with some programs that are most needed (Google Analytics, Search Console, Page Speed Insights), so that's convenient. It isn't widely supported by other programs, but it also doesn't need to be.

If the software was a little easier to use for beginners, there really wouldn't be an issue

Alternatives Considered

Octoparse

I have absolutely no experience with any other web scraping tools. That being said, Octoparse is so good, I've never needed to go find another one to try out. Is it the best thing out there? I have no idea, nor would I be qualified to make that statement. But I can say for someone with little to no background, it's very easy to pick up and start using.

Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is probably the best non-client facing SEO audit tool in terms of technical SEO. There are other tools on the market that do a more complete job of keyword tracking, competitive analysis, and backlink profiles...however, for analyzing the technical SEO health of any website, Screaming Frog is the best

Return on Investment

Octoparse

  • I have the free plan. Every time I land a cold lead generated through scraping it's 100% profit.
Peter Angel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

  • Increased employee efficiency - We spend many less hours tracking down and reporting simple meta tags.
  • Better Client Servicing - We are able to ensure we have a total look at a client's site before we recommend anything.
  • True Pricing Structure - We are able to more accurately predict how much help a client may need based on factors such as size of site, number of redirects, proper use of meta tags, etc.
